Mixed Case: Steak Pairing Sampler


The best food-wine pairings enhance both elements. Oysters and Chablis, blue cheese and Sauternes, tomato sauce and Sangiovese — these classic pairings have been around so long for a reason. And among the most traditional (and successful) is steak and red wine.

Bordeaux may be more famous for its marriage with steak, but we think Pinots from Burgundy can match well too. We’ve collected a few of our favorites from each region and suggest a cut with each.

Fleuron de Liot St-Estèphe 2014
This blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Bordeaux’s left bank is dense and meaty, with notes of plum, licorice, cedar and spice. Decant for an hour, and serve with marinated flank steak.

Belland Santenay 1er cru red 2015
This smooth, inky Pinot Noir is a perfect bistro-style red, with notes of wild cherries, earth, and mushrooms. Serve with a well-seasoned skirt steak or grilled sirloin tips.

Lafont Menaut Pessac-Leognan rouge 2015
This Merlot-Cab blend from Bordeaux’s left bank is drinking beautifully today, with smooth tannins, subtle earthiness, and notes of woods and spice. Serve with filet mignon or tenderloin.

Ravaut Côte-de-Nuits-Villages 2017
This everyday Pinot Noir shows far more Burgundian elegance than its origin suggests. Look for notes of violets, raspberry, minerals, and toast; serve with NY strip steaks.
